Previous Waiver Wire Results in 2017

 

Bruce Kinder and Larry Weinhauer’s teams are both sitting atop each Varsity League we have this season. Kinder’s RHODO, which has scored 306 so far this year, tallied a 146.55 in Week 2, thanks in part to Aaron Rodgers 24.95 and Hunt. Weinhauer’s Troy’s Boys entry scored a 163.75 this week, which contributed to his 302 season-long score. His lineup was led by Tom Brady’s 35.25, Davante Adams’ 239 and Melvin Gordon’s 20.8 Week 20.8 points. The first place winner in each of these total points leagues will cash a $20,000 prize.

Big props go to Planet Hollywood for the fantastic spreads they served to all of our live players during all of the drafts. And special thanks go to Alex, Sam and all who helped facilitate, register and organize the weekend’s festivities. A HUGE thank you to Chris for coordinating everything as well!

On a personal note, it was awesome to meet many of you for the first time and catch up with a lot of you that I had met before. Probably my favorite thing about our live events each year is those interactions I can have with you in between drafts and at the Viewing Party. Good luck to each of you this year!

2nd Waiver Wire Run Tonight; 36 Main Event Teams Left

Submit Your Waiver Bids Today

Make Sure Your Lineup Is Set with Irma Concerns Looming

The second waiver wire run of the season applies to any Footballguys Players Championship, FFPC Classic, FFPC Dynasty, FFPC Victory Points, and FFPC DraftExperts Plus leagues that drafted on or before Tuesday, September 5th.

Since uncertainty remains about when the Dolphins and Bucs will play their game (could be this weekend or their Week 11 bye week), it’s important to make sure you are not relying on any player from those two teams as your only option at quarterback, tight end, kicker or defense.

  • Waivers will process TONIGHT, Wednesday, September 6th at 10 p.m. ET.
  • ALL Footballguys Players Championship, FFPC Classic, FFPC Dynasty, FFPC Victory Points, and FFPC DraftExperts Plus leaguesthat drafted on or before Tuesday, September 6th will get a preseason waiver wire tonight.
  • Bidding is open right now and closes just before 10 pm ET tonight, Wednesday, September 6th.

General FFPC Waiver Tips

  • You can only get one player per bid group. If you want multiple players, you need multiple bid groups and I suggest different drop players as well.
  • To bid, go to your FFPC MyTeams page on myffpc.com. Then click the blue link to go to your league home page. Then go to the navigation link TEAM, then CREATE BID GROUP about 1/4 of the way down the page.
  • Each team starts with $1,000 bidding dollars. Those $1,000 are all that a team gets for the entire season, so please bid wisely. Any bidding dollars spent tomorrow will count towards the season’s total.

The waivers will then process overnight, but the players will not show up on your roster until roughly five hours later at about 3 a.m. We scheduled this as not to overload our servers when we have so many live drafts still going on until a little after 2 a.m.

As a friendly reminder for all online Main Event drafts this weekend, your waivers will not open until AFTER Week 1 of the NFL season.

36 Spots Left To Draft Your Main Event

The 2017 FFPC Main Event is also nearly sold out for the year! And if you want to draft live at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, then we are coming up on your last chance to enter.

Preseason Waiver Wire For Hurricane Irma

MIA/TB Potentially Postponed

Waiver Wire Runs Tomorrow For Wk 1 Lineup Fixes

As you may have heard by now, the NFL is considering postponing Sunday’s game between the Bucs and Fins due to the approaching Hurricane Irma storm. While no official announcement from the league is expected until sometime tomorrow (as neutral sites and other solutions are being considered), the possibility of moving the game to Week 11 when both teams are on bye still remains.

If you only drafted one quarterback, tight end, kicker and/or defense from either of these teams, we wanted to make sure you were aware of the preseason waiver wire that will run in all non-Main Event, non-DraftExperts leagues tomorrow. So you will have the opportunity to not take a zero from any of those positions if the NFL indeed postpones the game to a later date.

We have had a hurricane precedent on multiple occasions in the FFPC in the past, and we have always handled it the same way, which is to adhere to the rules with no exceptions. We will continue to do so as we act as impartial commissioners in all of our leagues.

As a special message to all of our players in Florida that are preparing for this storm, please stay safe and we wish all of you the best going forward.

Sincerely,

Eric Balkman

Main Event LIVE IN LAS VEGAS #2 2 of 12 $1,875 Fri 9a PT

Also don’t forget that if you wanted to add another Main Event squad, you’ll get a hefty discount all the way down to $1500 online ($1625 live). That’s the lowest price we will offer this season and could be just the ticket to life-changing money before the end of the year! The 2017 Main Event prize structure is guaranteed regardless of the final amount of entries.

After these leagues fill this weekend, we will only be taking wait listed teams for the final online Main Event draft time, and there is no guarantee that your league will fill after that.

The 2017 FFPC Main Event rolls on TONIGHT!
